Well it's almost the end of January, so that means here in New England we have a good 2 months more of winter to "look forward to." It also means the people I live with are starting to go stir crazy! I have heard IT ALL, all of the things they want to do. SOOO...
I have compiled a list of the things they all want do but can't...LISTEN UP KIDS!
THINGS WE CANNOT DO IN THE WINTER:
1. Play on the swingset
2. Ride bikes
3. Roller skate
4. Dig in the dirt
5. Swim in Meme's pool
6. Go outside with no coat
7. Go swing at the park
8. Hop in the wagon and go for a walk.
9. Use sidewalk chalk on the driveway
10.Wear flip flops
11.Take baby dolls for walks in their stroller
12.Sleep in a tent...outside
***I cannot change these things, so crying, whining, begging and temper tantrums will not work***
I have made indoor tents, not good enough.
I have brought beach shovels and pails into the snow, kept them happy for about a minute. They actually fought over the snow!
I let Hannah wear her bathing suit around the house for a day, all she did was complain she was cold but would not change.
I bought a chalkboard and hung it up in the playroom, apparently not "fun" like outside.
So, for now, I GIVE UP! The winter has won and I feel trapped! I need a vacation!
